Want to be a better drummer? There's a Yamaha DTX app for that!


Yamaha has a number of mobile apps for their DTX  electronic drums to make drumming more fun while helping you to get better! 

DTXM12 Touch
The DTXM12 Touch app not only lets you edit the pads with a touchscreen interface but also adds new features that expand its functionality in live performance situations. When the DTX-MULTI 12 is connected to an iPad or iPhone via USB, drummers can now trigger song playback and backing tracks from their music library using the pads, and then mix the audio through the stereo auxiliary input! Additionally, the app includes a mixer for all the sounds of a kit, including up to four sounds per pad, and access to every parameter of the instrument. It also lets users quickly see what voices are assigned to the pads on the touchscreen.

DTX502 Touch

The DTX502 Touch app lets drummers take control of the DTX502 drum trigger module using their iOS' touch-screen interface when connected via USB. Now it's even easier to create custom user kits, layer and cross-fade two different sounds per pad, and program up to 30 click and tempo settings for instant recall. The app also serves as a conduit for downloading new kits in a wide range of styles from YamahaDTX.com. In addition, the app has a unique Hybrid Setup wizard that helps drummers calibrate custom trigger settings quickly for their DTX 502-series kit, or any combination of electronic pads and acoustic drum triggers! 


 With the DTX402 touch app, the creative possibilities are nearly limitless. Fine tune your DTX402 series kit to precision. Change the sounds for any of the 10 built in kits or individual pads, set custom tunings, volume settings and more. Access the Trigger setup, Reverb and Pedal settings with a single touch, and adjust the virtual position of the open hi-hat. You can even set the volume for the on board "Voice Guidance" training system. The 402 touch app also has 10 built in play along songs, designed to make you a more well rounded, diversified drummer. Choose to play along with either the pre-recorded drums with those songs as a practice reference, or use the option to mute the pre-recorded drums and take on the show for yourself. The app has a big focus on education ,and offers 10 challenge mode practice exercises, covering a variety of important skills and topics every drummer should strive for.
